Filming is underway at Universal Studios’ movie backlot, but cast and crew are sent running in terror at an unknown source. As they flee and chaos takes over, the unstoppable Tyrannosaurus Rex of Jurassic World is revealed to be the terrifying source.
Thus begins the new marketing campaign of “Jurassic World – The Ride” which opens this summer at Universal Studios Hollywood.
“Jurassic World—The Ride” will debut an all new story taking place within the theme park, seen in the film Jurassic World on the day the Indominus rex escapes.
The thrill ride will include several iconic dinosaurs from the movie, including the colossal Indominus rex and the aquatic Mosasaurus that will mesmerize guests from behind a three million gallon glass-encased Aquarium Observatory tank.
There will be a new entry statement, stonework landscaping, and a redesign of the Jurassic World gates illuminated with billowing flames. Interactive videos featuring information about the dinosaurs within will be available to guests waiting in line.
Once aboard, guests will traverse the areas of dense vegetation with dinosaurs an arm’s length away around every corner. Encounters with docile creatures will quickly go awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey.
As the Tyrannosaurus rex begins to fight one of the attraction’s new dinosaurs, the guests’ rafts must go down an 84-foot waterfall as it is the only means of escape.
Located nearby will also be a new “Raptor Encounter,” where Blue, the Velociraptor from the Jurassic World franchise, will engage guests in face-to-face encounters.
As summer draws near, keep an eye out for more information on the new “Jurassic World- The Ride.”
